Candidate information vital for voters

You will notice that a majority of this week’s issue is devoted to the upcoming primary election. And rightfully so.

Making a decision about who to vote for can be a challenging task and we here at the Boulder City Review want to give local voters as many opportunities as possible to learn more about the candidates vying for mayor and City Council.

We believe that being informed before heading to the polls is a critical part of the democratic process.

Included in these pages are stories we have written after interviewing the candidates as well as their biographies and their answers to other questions we asked. Their responses to our questions appear as they were submitted to us, with minor editing for spelling, grammar and punctuation. We believe that gives you a better picture of the candidates and their viewpoints.

Additionally, we have posted short video interviews with the candidates on our website, www.bouldercityreview.com. We invite you to watch them.

We want to thank each of the candidates for their time and effort participating in our forum, in-person and video interviews and answering questions that were submitted by local residents. We know the time and commitment it takes to run for office and our requests were only part of the many that came from other community groups and organizations.

As in the past, we will refrain from making any endorsements in the races for mayor or City Council as we believe that when given enough information, our residents are capable of choosing who they feel is the best candidate for them.

As a reminder, early voting for the June 14 primary begins May 28 and continues through June 10, with voting available in Boulder City on June 7-10 at the Parks and Recreation Department Building, 900 Arizona St.

On Election Day, Boulder City will have two voting centers: at the recreation center and King Elementary School, 888 Adams Blvd. Both will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Some people have real problems”

A wise man (OK, it was George Carlin…) once said that life is just a series of dogs. I told my wife before that it may be easier to gauge the length of our union by the number of boxes of doggie ashes on the shelf than to remember exactly how many years (39 days short of 35 1/2 years as of the date of this issue of the newspaper for those keeping track at home).

Christmas in September?

It’s Christmas this month. I know it’s only September, but still, it’s that time of year as far as the Marine Corps is concerned. That’s because the organization has been mailing out its annual charity letters, asking for donations for the Toys for Tots campaign.

Fighting fire with desire

Boulder City’s fire department has been busy lately. Busy, that is, preparing. Like any good firefighters, the best work they’ll ever do doesn’t involve actual fires. Rather, it involves prevention, education, training, and readiness, just in case those rare emergencies arise.

Policing is a career that requires men and women with skills, patience and understanding. The Boulder City Police Department is filled with officers who truly care for this community and the people in it.

Hangar leases: Attempting to set the record straight

The recent articles, along with a letter to the editor concerning the newly-adopted airport hangar leases, gave the impression to the reader that the citizens of Boulder City are being cheated out of potential airport revenue.

Rifle and Pistol Club important to BC, region

Buying, owning and carrying firearms is easy in Nevada. Every good gun owner will tell you that safe habits, a sense of caution and practice are critical for safe firearms ownership. Learning these values can help keep you – and the people around you – safe. Here in Boulder City, the Rifle and Pistol Club has been teaching safe handling and use of firearms for more than 60 years.

Happy with article

Eagle pride alive and well at BCHS

As some of you may know, I grew up in Boulder City. So, I’m an Eagle at heart with blue and gold pumping through my veins. I know. That combination would make some kind of green color but you get where I’m going.

The Great Hangar Debate of 2023

For the past month, more or less, I have found myself returning more often than usual to the tome that most shaped and informed the way I look at government and politics.
